Is it weird that we take huge pride in our wardrobe? Like a mini collection of art, we've spent many years curating and collecting in order to build our ideal closet. You could even say the walk-in doubles as an ensemble exhibit! And, although our style has evolved, we can't help but notice a serious trend that has withstood the test of time of time: convo-starters. Whether it's fancy footwear or a knock-out frock, we love each and every item that manages to make a major statement.
Well, our latest fashion investment isn't of Picasso proportions, but it's just as awesome and abstract. Because of L.A.-based jewelry designer Jessica Kelley's combination of eco-resin and casts, the new pieces from Cast & Combed's crafty collection are like wearable works of art — literally! Her beads totally beat blowing your entire month's salary on a canvas for the sheer reason that you actually enjoy the art sans membership fees. And, we can't help but trip over the lookbook she created with JUCO Photo — those marbled backgrounds are a little bit of Jackson Pollock mixed with spin art!
Looks like we've got our next LACMA-worthy outfit ready to roll, time to finally hit up the Ken Price retrospective! Bonus points: We'll likely match the exhibit, talk about a real conversation-starter.
